Forum: etree Subject: "Transclude other item(s)" ??

Maybe I am just not getting it but does anyone know what the 'Transclude other item(s)' page does on a show page?

From here: http://www.archive.org/details/eh2012-01-19.aud

to here: http://www.archive.org/transclude.php?id=eh2012-01-19.aud

Maybe I just don't get it... someone help explain what it is for! :)

you'll be able to use sections of files from other items in an item without actually having to put the file in the item.

So I can upload a video to 'community audio' and it will be able to appear in a "portal" in my audio fileset, like http://www.archive.org/details/CVB2012-01-04 ? Or would I go to Transcode editor first, and create the new page, then go add the video there?

This is perfect, I saw this thread before but didn't see a link. Now I'm about to upload a video and I see the link offering to transcode.

It's also perfect because I'm learning how to turn my personal "tape list" into a relational db, and I can see that this is an example of normalization. "Remove repeating fields" in this case, the item to be transcluded!!

Editing again. I just tried to transclude between
http://www.archive.org/details/Cracker2009-05-16-Erinstock-Video
and
http://www.archive.org/details/Cracker2009-05-16.KM140
and it worked one way, and barfed the other way.

What is it that I'm doing??! :-x

Can it be used to make super-items? I'd like to have a single item containing all of https://archive.org/details/wikimediacommons (or at least groups of 12 items) so that it gets even easier to download in bulk without having to actually upload super-huge tarballs.

no. at this time it's intended fro internal use to create books from micro film reels that have more than one book on them.

Would be great if it were possible to use it to group a series of audio files into a collection. For example, I use archive.org to archive the preaching at our church. I generally have submitted each message separately, but a series on a particular book of the Bible may have 30-60 messages in it. It would be great to be able to suck all of these messages together onto one page for the whole series!
